Okay, I’ll admit that I’m junkie for Urban Decay.

Today we get a twofer.

First is an abandoned “secret” Russian submarine base called Bechyovinka (via Warren Ellis):

It reminds me a bit of “The Village” from the Prisoner.

Our second feature is the decaying remains of the Biosphere 2, the space base built here on earth that started the 9os off with a burst of insane optimism (via Boing Boing):

There’s a sadness t0 both of these places that speaks to the dark side of humanities eternal optimism, and our tendency to be unable to distinguish between what’s important in the moment, and what really matters across time.
